Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Favorite mind altering substances while listening to the Dead.

Hey Now,

Yeah, yeah, yeah, right, right, right none of us ever partake while listening to the vibe of America's greatest Rock n Roll band, um huh!

Recently took a three week sabbatical from the favorite greens, bud green and the grapes, i guess you could say a victim of the vine so to speak, cause the temple said it was time to take a rest.

Now i'm certain Lysergic will come to mind, but i wouldn't know where to obtain the liquid these day's, and i'm not preying on the local high school kids either, which is where i'm sure it could be sourced. The white powder trip never had a happy ending, whether the persian or bolivian varietals.

The interesting phenomenon was that during this three week period, not once was there an interest or urge to fire up the old victrola? What, after 41 years of listening is it possible to burn-out on Jerry and the boys? And for the last 15 years or so, have had little lys-“urge”to listen to pre-1970's Dead.

Being the 22nd day last evening, we popped open a couple bottles of Talbott 03 Diamond T's, rolled up some purps and my god, the band hasn’t sounded better in twenty years.

What's your favorite choice of mind altering, mood setting substances?

Many years ago it was 'shrooms, now it's a strong black coffee so I can stay up late enough to listen to an entire show at night. :)

Anything and everything, love it just the same...

Take that back. The one and only time I tried ketamine was in the show- Other Ones, 2001 if memory serves- some kid turned me on. The result was the audio hallucinations flat out ruined Robert Hunter's acoustic solo set. Wild echoing, stretching, and bending of the sound just frigged it all to hell, so thoroughly that I could barely recognize the songs, even having listened to them 100's of times.

Stay away from the special K I say...

You know he won't Tim. Poor Koch, he must be pretty ill to have created so many different user names here. pretty funny seeing him reply to himself.

What happened at LSP? The place is like a morgue. No one has posted there in months. I guess that's why he has to seek attention here, everyone left there like there was some kind of plague...

As I've admitted before, other than sentimental bottle of Southern Comfort (yuck), I rarely did much at concerts (like those above put it, figuring I paid too much to obscure the experience since various approaches didn't always "enhance" it, if you follow...uptight control freak nature and all, it was likely to produce unwanted side-effects in public domain).

At home, now, age-related issues make it all the less appealing. In fact, generally my time with music is associated with the gym and an ipod, so just the opposite of the implication, really.

Yes, life after 50 is a big change; has been for me, but as the ol' man always said, it beats the alternative (no life after 50).

I use the "better than the alternative" line all the time I picked it up from a guy I play basketball with that is almost 60, he just keeps going. I dont know if i'll still be playing in 20 years might have to take up golf soon but I hope not. The line comes in handy when people start complaining it tends to snap them out of it and makes you think that it could always be alot worse. The shitty part is I tweaked my knee a little playing this week. The floor was slippery from the snow but alas better than the alternative.

I first blew out my knee on experimental "carpeted gym floor" (one, only of course; think really small ply, indoor turf...hard to explain, but smooth with incredible traction...duh; foot stopped, body/knee kept going...dislocation...yikes). Suffice it to say, city quickly dropped the experiment; probably coulda gotten some money if I knew a lawyer at the time...ruined my life in some ways, but then back went out...kept playing for 15 yrs post surg (dumbass).

Wife never forgave me; I played WAY too much...everyday for 15 yrs; often twice a day.

Holy, every day is alot. I try to play twice a week and then do some sort of cardio every day. The one floor is rubberized tile over cement(old church school gym) and the salt left some film on the floor even though it was washed 3 times before we played. I don't think it's anything major but i will take a few weeks off. Sucks though I need that kinda release this time of year.

The hang overs hurt more then they used to. Corn bread and ice tea took the place of pills and ninety-proof.

The music is about the only "mind altering substance" I can deal with anymore.

Last time I saw Hank Jr. he was nowhere near corn bread and ice tea, even though that's what he proclaimed. More like corn rye whiskey and Long Island ice tea chasers.

These days wine with dinner and the occasional late night greens work for me. Hard liquor, white substances and paper hallucinogens aren't advisable, so says my cardiologist. Although the occasional fungi is welcome if at the right frame of mind and health. Young kids and a demanding job tend to curtail extracurricular.

I can't even imagine what an actual hangover would do to me now. Simply lacking sleep causes the same effects.

Try some THC ice cream if there is medical marijuana store near you.

I am now in AW's corner. While touring I was an overmedicated freak. Had more fun than I thought was humanly possible. Loved the music, but probably loved the "scene" just as much. Now, with the exception of a serious weakness for Islay single malt, I'm relatively clean. The music has taken on a new life and I am loving it even more now than before, and all for different reasons. No longer am I just looking for the next monumental explosion, instead I am really appreciating the more subtle aspects of the music. For example I don't think I ever really gave Bobbie all the credit he deserves for what he contributes musically.
That and thanks to a recent experiment, I found that sampling the green left me more looking for a comfortable bed than a favorite show. And if I ever tried the tabs again? Well, I know where to get them, but I'm pretty sure that if I tried again I would quickly be reduced to a shivering mass of confusion huddled in the corner, babbling about mortgages, IRA's, tuition, colonoscopies and prostate issues.

I found near the end of my years of touring that I preferred nothing at all. I wanted nothing between me and the experience (not having to stand in line at the bathroom helped too). In the end my favorite was nothing at all.

Though if caffeine counts... sometimes

Quite honestly the acid scene was really over for me after seeing a tiger walk out of his stipes and the stone lions started to roar. . So the next was to save up a stash of weed, ludes and some coca for the New Years gigs in Oakland where a bunch of friends from both NY and San Diego would come and we would have someone manage to drive and by the time they were giving out the apples,oranges and granaola we were ok.Later in life the weed is to strong and nothing else works or is so detremental that it doesn't pay.I started pretty young and unfortunately did
not see the the evil before it was to late. I do assure you this had abosolutely no effect on telling a good show from an utter disaster.Just one other observation I must admit it's been a pleasure here w/o our very bigoted friend
and in no way sorry he's gone, free speech or not....LW

I almost always took mushrooms on the 1st nite. I found that that stuff was really best when I had plenty of energy. Seems like shows 2,3 and (sometimes) 4 I was simply too tired to enjoy the heavy stuff. So, I'd shroom my face off night-one and mellow down easy with weed for the remainder of the run.

I also have not taken and substances in years. I completely agree, there would be so many possible hang-ups which did not exist in my younger mind.
